The Dyspraxia Foundation updated the definition of dyspraxia earlier this year to incorporate the current terminology of Developmental Coordination Disorder (D.C.D.) used internationally by researchers and in the medical profession. The Trustees felt that the Dyspraxia Foundation should use the term within the logo to ensure consistency and to reflect the fact that the terms are often used interchangeably.
Incorporating DCD will also ensure that when people are searching DCD on a web browser, the Dyspraxia Foundation will feature in the search results, thus increasing our visibility to the wider world and helping more people.
